ASU recruiting director resigns in wake of arrest

Sherman Morris resigns as ASU's assistant athletic director for recruiting in wake of domestic violence arrest.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State assistant athletic director for recruiting Sherman Morris has resigned from his position following his August arrest on domestic violence charges.


"Because it is a personnel matter, ASU will have no further comment," an ASU spokesman said after confirming that Morris resigned Friday.

 

Morris had been on administrative leave since being arrested shortly after midnight on Aug. 29. According to Chandler Police, Morris and his wife got into an argument, with Morris choking her and punching her twice. Morris faces two aggravated assault charges and is next due in court Oct. 4.


Morris was hired in March after six years at LSU as director of player personnel.
